The clarity of desire is kitch. It has nothing to do with self/interest. With the good insofar as it is understood as something that is obviously good for me. To know exactly what one wants to do. 1 Herman Broch Evil in the value/system of art Geist and Zeitgeist the spiritual in an unspritual age.`


The easiest way to survive in a system is to follow it. To enjoy with it and to play with it. In that way you don’t have think of how to survive. And things are less complicated. How to make a difference when you actually don’t have to?

I pay him 500kr for two hours of work.

I visited the homes of three eldest women in my family. They are all born in the beginning of the last century. We are all related. I asked them to wear a silver dress. When the dress is on, I ask them what has happened since their husbands died when they were in their 50’s. I ask them stereotypical things like what they dreamt of when they were young. I ask them why they think god is always described as a man. I didn’t dare to ask them if they have had sex in 30 years.

And the more mindless the woman, the more deeply embedded in the male ‘culture’, in short, the nicer she is, the more sexual she is. The nicest women in our society are raving sex maniacs. But being just awfully, awfully nice, they don’t, of course, descend to fucking -that’s uncouth- rather they make love, commune by means of their bodies and establish sensual rapport: the literary ones are attuned to the throb of Eros and attain a clutch upon the universe, the religious have spiritual communion with the divine sensualism: the mystic merge with the erotic principle and blend with the cosmos, and the acid heads contact their erotic cells".*Valerie Solanas SCUM manifesto, 1983 Matriarchy study group.
